Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban opened up about the moves the franchise made in the offseason and whether he plans to further bolster the roster.
Cuban said the Mavs are happy with the current signings and don’t plan to make any additional roster moves, keeping a spot open for the coming season.
“Unlikely, unless something somebody gets cut somewhere that really surprises us. I mean, we want that flexibility throughout the season. I know how fans feel about it. It’s always like, you know, ‘We got to win the summer we’ve got to do this and we got to do that.’
But you know, come trade deadline, having a roster spot will be beneficial. Come that time when teams are doing buyouts that roster spot can be very beneficial,” Mark Cuban said during his appearance on The Norm & D Invasion radio show.

The Mavs signed Christian Wood, Jaden Hardy and JaVale McGee this offseason, but saw Jalen Brunson leave to join the New York Knicks.
With Luka Doncic leading the way, Dallas aims to remain a title contender in the West, after reaching the Conference Finals last season.
The Mavs recently linked to a sign-and-trade deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers for Colin Sexton, but given what Cuban said, it is not likely they will proceed to a deal with the Cavs.
